How To Start An Online Business From Home

Nicki Edgell

Do you like writing?  Would you like to turn your talent for writing towards making some money online through writing a blog? Could you write about the Nikken water and promote and share its already established health benefits online?

The above easy to follow Flow Chart shows you how you can set up an online business in a matter of days and begin to earn commissions. Steps 1 to 8 are carried out just the once during set up (if you have Nikken water in your life already you can skip steps 1 and 2!). Steps A to E are for repeating.

1. Taste the Water (Discover)

The Nikken philosophy is Discover. Live. Share. First discover the product:Taste the water. You could do this by contacting your nearest Nikken consultant and arranging to meet, or by attending a demonstration at a seminar or workshop. Most consultants will be delighted to let you sample the water.

Alternatively after doing your research and reading some reviews you may feel confident enough to go right ahead and start benefiting immediately from having your own Nikken unit either by way of the countertop Waterfall model or the portable Sports Bottle (at the incredibly good value price in comparison to other water filters it's a fairly low risk and we've never had anyone not love the water and want to return a unit).

Nikken Pimag Water is available via a portable bottle or counter top unit

2. Buy a Waterfall (Live)

As a network marketing company Nikken products are only available to order through an Independent Nikken Consultant either over the phone or online.

Please note it is not absolutely necessary to have your own Waterfall in order to start a business selling the same but it does help for a number of reasons. If you live by the Nikken products it is easier to have the credibility to sell them with knowledge, experience, and confidence. You also have one on hand in order to provide water to guests and visitors, and sample bottles to interested parties.

3. Decide To Sell Waterfalls (Share)

This is the share part. Having had your own product experience with the Nikken water you may decide that you would like to have your own business spreading the health benefits and selling Waterfalls yourself.  Nikken is a one stop health company that does produce a suite of health products in light, air, nutrition, sleep and skincare - water is just one product but one of the most popular and easiest to sell. Many Nikken consultants make a business from primarily selling the water.

4. Join Up

In order to set up a business selling Nikken products you need to become an Independent Nikken Consultant yourself by joining the Nikken family through the consultant that introduced you. The current fee to join Nikken is £78/year in the UK. For this you receive an online web e-commerce shop which administers all the ordering and shipping, plus access to training and mentoring. We think for the price this is very good value considering an e-commerce enabled web page alone would likely cost more than this in annual webspace rental. The free online training and mentoring can also be applied to any areas of your life to beneficial effect.

5. Set Up Your Online Shop

Once you receive your log in details you will need to activate your online shop with a few customizable items. Familiarise yourself with the layout of the shop and the links to the water products which you will reproduce in your marketing.

6. Set Up Your Google Account

Next set up your Google Account (if you have a gmail account you will have one already). From here you have access to a suite of Free Google services including Blogger (there are other blog services available such as wordpress which you may be familiar with already which is fine, but unless you already have established blogging services I recommend using Google Blogger which is quick and easy and free to set up). Read more about free social media and the power of blogging here.

7. Think of a Name

Think of a name for your blog. This will subsequently appear in your web address in the format

8. Start Your Blog

Set up your blog using one of the four new Google Blogger templates - Contempo, Soho, Emporio or Notable. Experiment with different themes, fonts and colours (all customisable by the user). You can add static pages, search boxes, etc - a blog is as good as a fully fledged website these days. More advanced users can even add their own web coding although this is hardly necessary with the new templates.

You are now ready to start marketing

A. Write a Blog Post

Get writing. Write on and around the subject and include links to your shop. Learn how to include photos, quotations, labels, tags, and links. Don't worry too much about perfection to begin with - I advise just to get going. The fine tuning and cosmetics can be sorted out later. You will also learn as you go gaining a thorough knowledge of your product and how to write compelling content.

Of course your blog can be on anything although most successful bloggers tend to keep within a relatively narrow band allowing them to be located through specialist searching thus gaining a niche readership. The idea of the blog is to get out there and found on Google. Customers can find you or you can direct people to your blog for information. Ultimately you will want to drive people to your shop.

B. Share

Once you've spent time on a blog post get full value from it by sharing it to other social media - facebook, twitter, linkedin. Plant seeds far and wide. Statistics are available to show you which of your posts are most popular - these are good ones to recycle and share again and again.

C. Collect Commission

Nikken has various bands of commission based on your sales. To begin with you will earn 20% on the net value of Waterfall sales. A Waterfall retails for approximately £260 in the UK. A sale will yield around £40 in commission.

D. Follow Up

There are good reasons to keep in touch with your Waterfall customers. Many customers appreciate after sales care. As a network marketer this is an area where you can really stand out and provide a truly personal service. The customer will subsequently more likely come to you if they become interested in other Nikken products.

The Waterfall unit does require replacement filters, and logically they will get these from you too - you will earn commission in turn on the filters.

Like you, some customers may even decide they'd like to join your team and sell Waterfalls themselves. If this happens you start to build your own sales team and you'll earn commission on your team's sales too.

E. Teach Others

You may offer the business opportunity to others and duplicate your method with them. In turn they may share their experience onwards too and your network team will grow and consequently your commissions too.

Repeat Steps A to E Above

Is That It?

It can be and it's a good start. Many online business owners (and that's what you would be!) purely market on the internet and make a good income. If you write a focused blog post once a week (why not set that as a challenge?) after a year you will have one of the leading online resources on your specialist subject and both customers and google will like that!

Of course there is always more. You can expand the range of products you offer. You can go to networking events and make presentations, or do a combination of things. There are many ways to do the Nikken business. It depends on your personal preferences, your needs, your lifestyle and what works for you.

Network marketing is not a get rich quick scheme. It does take work and planning and persistence to become one of the top 5% in the industry who succeed. But if writing is your thing and you have, or can learn, some basics of online marketing, you will be ahead of most the competition.

And of course, you need to have something worthwhile selling - something people like and need and want. That's where Nikken comes in by providing a quality product you can be confident in promoting.

If you would like to learn more about either the Nikken water, or setting up your own business to sell it, I'd be delighted to hear from you. Please send me an email or make a comment below.
